it's taken all morning but I finally got the DellBIOSProvider-installer script to work. I think. There doesn't seem to be a way to check that all is well. I had to uncomment the line 58 to get it to work.
When I place the line "import-module "C:\Program Files\Dell\PowerShell\Modules\DellBIOSProvider\DellBIOSProvider.dll" -Verbose " into the profile.ps1 script I get the following when I open a powershell session. I get the following.
Copyright (C) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

What is going wrong?
It could be a number of things.
Is the HAPI driver installed?
has the module already been imported?
You can force the import if needed by adding the -force switch.
I have been trying to configure DellsmBIOS:\PowerManagement\AutoOnTime and I noticed that the only options that may be changed are the days of the week (Everyday, Weekdays, Select Days), but there doesn't appear to be a way to set the time of day. Could we get some documentation or clarification on this one? Thanks in advance.
Sorry, Current Beta version doesn't support the operation of custom attributes. the next version of Dell Client PowerShell Provider may have this features supported.
Great. Thanks for the clarification. Glad you guys are making these it will be helpful for my organization moving forward.
